The former BCCI president has finally opened up about the decision to make Rohit India’s new captain.
Four top players--- Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja have been put in the Grade A Plus while six other players have been placed in Grade A by the BCCI.
After Bollywood celebrities, now, Indian cricketers are the latest victims of AI deepfake video. Recently, a video has been grabbing eyeballs that features MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma among others.
Rohit in his own style asked Sarfaraz to be careful and not to be a hero. The skipper also asked him to wear protective gears.
Jaiswal could be heard talking to a fan girl. As the girl asks Jaiswal to get her to speak to the player next to him, the opening batter refuses by saying that he too is afraid of him.
Recently, Rohit shared a collage on Instagram story in which one can see Jurel effecting a run out while Sarfaraz and Yashasvi are celebrating a big moment while batting together.
With two new fresh batters, England went to Mark Wood’s thunderbolts, and Ashwin got off the mark with a beautiful punch through cover for four.
“Imagined, manifested, and rehearsed this day so many times ever since I first picked up the bat. My dream came true 🇮🇳,” said an emotional Jurel as he received the Test cap.
In his first Test match, Sarfaraz went on a rampage from the start and scored a fluent 62 off just 66 balls. He scored his first half-century with nine fours and a six.
Captain Rohit Sharma was furious with Jadeja. He threw his cap in anger in the dressing room.
India were in trouble after losing quick wickets of top-order batters Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill and Rajat Patidar. However, skipper Rohit along with star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja steadied the ship.
India captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to bat.
Considered as India’s domestic run machine Sarfaraz has been one of the most prolific performers in Ranji Trophy. Apart from Sarfaraz Khan, young talent and hard-hitting keeper-batter Dhruv Jurel has also got his maiden call in this match.
Jay Shah while speaking at at the unveiling of Niranjan Shah Stadium, Rajkot was quoted as saying that, “I want to promise you that in 2024 (T20 World Cup), under Rohit Sharma's captaincy, we will hoist the Indian flag in Barbados.”
It seems all is not well in MI camp ahead of IPL 2024. Speculation is also rife among the fans and experts that there has been a rift between Hardik and Rohit.
